About Wakatipu Grill

Our Signature lakeside restaurant, the Wakatipu Grill, at the Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa reflects the best of New Zealand's culinary heritage. The cuisine is inspiring with provocative takes on New Zealand flavors. Vast windows, an open kitchen and rotisserie, along with two circular slate fireplaces lend even more drama to this magnificent space. In the bar, be tempted by yet another captivating perspective of the lake, or an exceptional vintage - the 1000-strong wine cellar has a keen focus on Otago's best winemakers. Linger on the generous terrace where the elements combine to spectacular effect: the lake's indigo depths, the clear air and a decadent outdoor fire pit.

High Tea is served every Sunday 13.00 - 15.00

I’ve visited the grill a couple of times. The food is great and Grant and his team do an excellent job. The service delivery is somewhere poor. - not acknowledging arrival - no table ready at time of booking - long time to take a drink order - no explanation of food or specials - no follow up on how we enjoyed the food The grill competes with restaurants in town but value for price and service is not to be compared. I think the team can do better.

As long time locals this is a favourite dining spot for us. Great lake edge location and relaxed dining atmosphere. Great food and service made for a top night.

The manager from Kerry Ireland who seated us set the atmosphere for a great night. I have been to wakitipu grill several times and come back each time for the excellent service and delicious food. However, this time the bar was set even higher. The manager from Kerry helped us celebrate our new baby and grandparents visiting from the UK from the moment he sat us. Then we had Laura from Falkirk as our waitress who’s service was seamless and delightful. All around a great experience- thank you! The food, as always - incredible!

We had a great meal with an awesome view as we sat right in the window looking over the lake. Dishes were well put together and the amuse-bouche was a nice touch.
